Yesterday was our first big official job as a Junior Band and it couldn’t have gone any better!
Coppull and Standish Junior Band were invited to open the Smithills Garden Party 2017 in Bolton and this was a huge honour for all of the juniors.
We played through a wide variety of pieces ranging from a welsh hymn ‘Cym Ronda’ to the ‘Rocky’ theme and then finishing with a traditional march – ‘Slaidburn’. Everyone played their best and we couldn’t ask for more!
A big well done to everyone but especially to Josef; who recently transferred from tenor horn to percussion and was our drummer at the Garden Party. He had only been playing the drums for two weeks and he brought a smile to all our faces with his enthusiasm and confidence!
On behalf of all the juniors, I would like to thank all of the senior members who came down to help us out – Martin, Andrew, Paul, Bernard, Steve, Tom, Teresa, Zara and Gary.
Also a big thank you to all of the junior parents and guardians who accompanied us to the Garden Party and who gave lifts to those who needed it!
Finally, a huge thank you to Sir Alan for all the help, time and support you give all the juniors!!
We all had an amazing day out and all of the juniors had a great experience playing at such a big event!!
